The length of alcohol rehab
An alcohol addiction for every individual is different. The severity of an addiction, the causation, side effects and the length all vary. With that said, it is difficult to fully gauge the amount of treatment required, influencing the length of a person’s alcohol rehab journey.
Factors which will have a significant effect on how long alcohol rehab will take include, a user’s desire to recover, susceptibility to addiction treatment, the amount of support provided and any connected mental health issues.
Although a similar route of recovery will be taken, there’s no fixed structure to addiction treatment. When considering inpatient residential treatment, selected methods will vary to suit an individual’s needs. Alcoholism treatment and support shouldn’t be rushed, ensuring that an addiction is fully disconnected. Making sure you embrace the journey of alcohol rehab is important, to experience the greatest addiction recovery rate of living an alcohol-free future.
Here at Ocean Recovery Centre, we offer a variety of rehab programmes. The average alcohol rehab length is 28-days however, we do recommend that clients expect to undergo treatment for up to 6 weeks. Research has found that those who’ve completed greater, longer rehab programmes recover more effectively, continuing to lead an alcohol-free future. This will ensure that both physical and psychological links to alcohol are diminished. Alcoholism treatment will be completed until you feel ready to pursue a future without your dependency.

How alcohol rehab can help
No matter whether you have a short-term or long-term alcohol addiction, here at Ocean Recovery Centre, our mission is to help you recover from your addiction long-term. We do this by offering our specialised support and industry leading evidence-based addiction treatments. Taking your personal needs, along with your alcoholism history into consideration, a personalised addiction treatment plan will be created. This will give you the best opportunity to disconnect yourself.
We will offer a holistic approach to ensure that you are disconnected mentally, physically and spiritually from alcohol. All treatments will have their individual place to work on your side effects, each moving you a step closer to addiction recovery. Treatments offered at our rehab centre, in place to help you overcome your alcohol addiction include:
Clinical alcohol detox programme
To begin your addiction treatment, a clinical alcohol detox programme will be recommended. This is where a focus will be placed on the withdrawal symptoms you personally experience when alcohol consumption comes to a halt. From here, your detox programme will lower your consumption, helping your body and mind function without alcohol.
Detox programmes aren’t required by each of our clients, however, pairing clinical treatments with therapeutic therapies promote a higher recovery rate. For those who are living with a chronic daily dependency, this is an essential step to help an individual disconnect their body from substance abuse.
Once your detox has been completed, focus will be placed on your psychological connection to alcohol. Our expert therapists will firstly get to know your addiction history. This will help them understand where your alcohol dependency has stemmed from, ensuring that appropriate treatments are followed throughout your rehab journey. We will then discuss the psychological and emotional effects that consuming alcohol has on you. This step is fundamental to guide the route for future addiction treatments.
Treatments you can expect to experience include therapy sessions, support groups, meditation classes, cognitive behavioural therapy and family counselling. All will work through your thoughts, helping you envision a positive view of a future without alcohol.
For many of our clients, the biggest hurdle is visualising themselves without alcohol consumption. For some, daily consumption has been a regular occurrence, where alcohol has acted as a coping mechanism. Helping them move through a day or make it through a stressful situation. With that said, they struggle to imagine living each day without this addiction. Our therapeutic treatment will transform this mindset, showing how you can control your life again post rebab.
Once you have completed your treatment plan, you should feel a complete disconnect from your old habits. Our addiction treatments are designed to promote long-term addiction recovery, with very high success rates. We will ensure you are ready to lead an alcohol-free life post residential rehab, prior to returning home.
Please be aware that throughout your rehab journey, assessments will be made. Here is where we will observe your progression, helping to gauge how much longer your rehab programme should be. Treatment options may adapt depending on your susceptibility and goals.
